Caption Contest: Iron Ben 1

Tyler Durden's picture

With Iron Man 3 taking the theaters by storm this weekend, it is only appropriate that Iron Ben would make a cameo appearance now that the impregnable Dow crossed 15K, the S&P is over 1600, and pretty much everything is higher, literally and metaphorically, than it's ever been.

this is a genuine question:

what neuropathies/psychopathies are indicated by the speaker in the transcript below?

if you watch the entire video, you will observe facial ticks, flat affect, and (at the very end, in response to zh question) a deliberate/defiant absence of planning regarding an adverse event of substantial impact.


http://www.youtube.com/v/XU_q77z0PcQ&start=1906&end=1984&version=3&autoplay=true transcript um, your first question is, it's quite clear that there are differing views about uh, about this. and this, it's quite clear that uh, there are different, um, uh, I would say, different Inclinations about Mutualizing potential Losses stemming from banking system, systems. uh, but, first of all, the SSM [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Single_Supervisory_Mechanism], it wouldn't actually call for A Mutualization, so it could actually speedily proceed. the second point, much of the Restructuring and Resolution framework would not call, necessarily, for A Mutualization. I would, I would say that the challenging part there is The Coordination of the different bankruptcy laws in different parts of The Tnion, of the, of The Euro Area. so that could also go speedily. and I think the commission, I mean, uh, uh, I, I don't think, I'm sure, The Commission had done, uh, splendid work on both, on both accounts. and so The Council is now called, to, uh, sign these two Measures and so they can enter into Force as soon as possible because we have seen that they are crucial for The Stability. thank you.

um, your first question is,
it's quite clear
that there are differing views about uh,
about this.
and this, 
it's quite clear that uh, 
there are different, um, uh, 
I would say, 
different Inclinations about Mutualizing 
potential Losses stemming from 
banking system,
systems.

uh, but, first of all,
the SSM
[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Single_Supervisory_Mechanism],
it wouldn't actually call for
A Mutualization,
so it could actually speedily proceed.

the second point,
much of The Restructuring and Resolution framework
would not call, necessarily, for
A Mutualization.

I would,
I would say that
the challenging part there
is The Coordination of 
the different bankruptcy laws 
in different parts of 
The Union, of the, of 
The Euro Area. 
so that could also go speedily.

and I think The Commission,
I mean, uh, uh, I,
I don't think,
I'm sure,
The Commission had done, uh,
splendid work on both,
on both accounts.

and so The Council is now called,
to, uh, sign these two Measures
and so they can enter into Force
as soon as possible
because we have seen that
they are crucial for
The Stability.

thank you.

Are you suggesting he has ADD,

  or just senile dementia?

McMolotov's picture

Cocaine is a hell of a drug.

"Are you suggesting he has ADD, or just senile dementia?"

Mister Draghi is not my patient at the present time, so I have therefore made no diagnosis.

Moreover, should he choose to submit to my care, I would be obligated to respect patient/caregiver confidentiality.

that being said, one is always free to search the web (including videos) for terms such as "disorganized speech" in order to gain insight into how certain pathologies present.

also, there are strict limits imposed by maw-maw on having guests (i.e., patients) here in her basement. pretty much just saturday afternoons. sorry if that doesn't fit your schedule. I know you are busy with all that bail-in-ability stuff.

I don't know about everyone else, but I am really tired of Iron Man, Batman, Superman, transformers, x-men, and all the other movies hollywood seems to redo every couple of years with more explosions and updated graphics. Seriously can't we come out with anything new? Pretty soon we will have an ironman with Bernanke as the star. His power will be shooting ink and paper at his enemies.
